An Academic Alert should be given to any student who is at risk of failing your course and/or falls into one or more of the following categories:

  • has below a “C” (2.0) average
  • has missed significant amounts of work
  • has missed three or more classes (unexcused), or has excessive tardies
  • has never attended class
  • other reasons which you deem appropriate

Academic Alert Process

Streamlined single-sign-on access to the Academic Alert form is available through the Otis College Dashboard
